As investors and companies focus on the Australian AGM season, this Minerva briefing looks at ESG developments in the market. ESG activism plays an important role in driving the Australian market into the future. Indeed, ESG challenges have played a major role in shaping the Australian market, including the catastrophic 2019 bushfires, climate warming concerns, considerations of indigenous rights, and particularly Australia’s reliance on exports during the global COVID-19 health and economic crisis. Good ESG practice is critical in avoiding reputational damage and
building business resilience to crises such as the pandemic.
